Abstract:   (3723 Views)

Considering the risk associated with general anesthesia in especially ill neonates (under 30 days

of age), performing regional anesthesia in this group of patients would be of great benefit for the

patients and the anaesthesiologists, simultaneously.

In this investigation, we performed caudal anesthesia in a 25 day neonate who had electrolyte

imbalance and nutritional deficits, after informing the parents about the risk-benefit ratio of this

procedure and taking an informed consent. He had to undergo illeostomy and colostomy prior to

definitive surgery for Hirschsprung’s disease. By using caudal anesthesia after electrolyte

correction, the neonate underwent the surgical procedure and in this way, our patient had a rapid

recovery with no serious side effect, fortunately.
